Love looks good on me!

Maybe it’s me but sometimes God gives us the greatest gifts that don’t cost us a thing.  I feel like things have been crazy, I keep saying it!  I’M GOING TO HAITI!  And then, like me, I start thinking of all the things that could go wrong…  #1 on my list...  What if the kids in the orphanage don’t like me.  Isn’t that nuts?  I still feel like I’m that kid that’s picked last on the playground.    Always someone better to play with I guess.
It’s dumb to worry in the first place but to worry about that is just dumb. 
In the busy-ness of my life… BAKE SALE TOMORROW! I went over to love on my favorite muffins.  Ava, Lana, Levi, Judah, Zion with Phyllis.  I had gotten to see Jenna and Taylor this morning for lunch.  Let me tell you something, and let me tell you this too, I mean it with my whole heart.  Life doesn’t get much better than that.  Twilight walks (not the movie, we went for a walk in the dark as a distraction), bath time, watching Phyllis read to Lana, rocking Zion, forgetting to put on shoes, lots of giggles, and snuggle time.  It makes my heart sing.  In the craziness of life. It is those we love that matter most. 
I don’t often say this about me, but when you look at that picture, and even at the end of the day, flat hair, little makeup, don’t I look beautiful?  Love does that to you.
 Song of Solomon 7:6 How beautiful you are and how pleasing, my love, with your delights
